Winemakers across Napa Valley reported another stellar harvest for 2017. Bud break began early due to a warm spring, and the summer then brought moderate daytime temperatures with cool evenings. Harvest started early, in mid-August, and progressed at a steady pace. October ushered in a few rain showers that put a swift end to a successful harvest.
Food Pairing Notes
We recommend pairing our Petite Sirah with a blackened salmon, beef bourguignon or grilled pork tenderloin.
This Petite Sirah displays an exceptional and unique character. The layered complexity, along with vibrant aromas and flavors, make Petite Sirah a great asset in blending. For this wine, we wanted to showcase the varietal on its own. We bottle this wonderfully rich wine exclusively for our Wine Club members and winery guests.
